I'm thinking of buying a spectrum analyzer and would like to know what
Time Nuts recommend. My requirements are fairly simple:
3GHz Max frequency or higher
Either GPIB or Ethernet interface for control and data capture
Not much larger than an average desktop computer. Portable is nice but
Preferably under $3000.
I thought about building Scotty's Spectrum Analyzer or Poor Man's
Spectrum Analyzer, but decided I would rather buy one then build one.
I have an HP 141T but I am looking for something more modern. One of my
uses will be looking at C and Ku band satellite signals (down converted
to 950-2050 MHz). I'll also be using it to look at various RF data
links from 433 MHz to 2.4 GHz.
